Virginia Lynne "Ginni" Wood is a friend of ours, the younger sister of a friend of my wife's from Hawaii (they were Navy also). Ginni even joined us on a short vacation trip to the Big Island of Hawaii a couple of years ago when visiting her older sister in Honolulu.
She went missing six months ago while a student at Appalachian State University, where she was a Dean's List student majoring in Accounting. She last was heard from when she called a friend on March 10, 2007 from Texas and said she was going on a trip to Cancun, Mexico.
Virginia is believed to have been in the company of Kelly Gray Gaskins, a white female age 19, and Ervin Braxton Williams, a white male age 23, both from Chocowinity when she disappeared. Gaskins is wanted by the North Carolina Department of Corrections for a Probation Violation and Williams is wanted by the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office for failing to appear in court on charges of First Degree Arson, First Degree Burglary, Possession of Cocaine, Assault by Pointing a Gun, and Possession of Marijuana. Gaskins and Williams may also have additional information on the location of Virginia Wood.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Virginia Wood, Kelly Gaskins, or Ervin Williams or if you have seen or talked to Virginia Wood since March 10, 2007, please call the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office at (252)946-7111 or Beaufort County Crime Stoppers at (252)974-6400. Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1000.00 reward for information that confirms Virginia’s location or leads to the arrest of Gaskins and/or Williams. Callers do not have to give their name, only their information.

Please spread the word...this hasn't been picked up on a major news outlet, so we are helping in a drive to get the word out via the blogsphere. Jane blogged it today as well, as did many of her friends in the pet blogging circles.
